Thanks for the help - but I already have that version. I must be stubborn, but I'd still like to get SFC working properly.

Where did version 6.1.7600.16385 come from? I also have 5.90 and have all the latest updates installed.

CBS.log told me that kalinga.ttf version 6.1 etc. was the one that was corrupt.

I would try the version from the DVD, nothing to lose.

First, I have to figure out how to extract it from the original disk. The other thing is that now I think the problem is that SFC is comparing files against the restore version of Vista - and I long ago replaced Vista with Windows Home Premium. Can someone tell me how I can have SFC check files against the Windows 7? I don't mind cleaning the Vista Restore partition out because I'll never go back to Vista. I'd just as soon get rid of that partition and put the W7 files on the main partition. But I don't know which files those are and how to get SFC to point to them. It used to be that I would place the folder I386 in the Windows folder and change the Registry to point to C:\Windows. Windows 7 is different. Can someone help?
